Review of Buena Vista Ferry

Buena Vista Ferry
Attraction details
Reviewed 16 April 2014

One of three ferries on the Willamette (Wheatland and Canby) that still give regular service. Beuna Vista ferry does have limited service when the water levels are high. Many use it for regular travel and commuting, but at least take the kids, it will give them something to talk about.

Was a great trip, the operator was nice and informative. The Oregon back country is beautiful. We stay off the interstate as much as possible and this made the day trip perfect.

My husband and I were driving around north of Corvallis when we stumbled across the Buena Vista Ferry We couldn't believe we have both lived in Oregon all our lives and had never known about this ferry so of coarse we loaded the car on the ferry and went across the river I have to say this is now one of my favorite ways to cross the river. We had to take some of our family to see and ride it.

Get off the "beaten path" and enjoy a few minutes of a relaxing and scenic ferry ride (with a new ferry) for a couple of bucks. Then enjoy the park (west side) and the beautiful Willamette River.

Our bike tour crossed this ferry. The operator engaged in enjoyable banter with us as we crossed. Bikes are $1.00 each. The ferry boat is only one year old. Very nice experience on this quiet stretch of river in a very rural area. (Psst - you're supposed to walk your bike onto the ferry, but they won't bug you about it if you ride!)
